Send it back to the manufaturer. My father had an old Bushnell and sent it back . They refurbished it for free + shipping .

leave sit in a dry room for days. but that said, it can never be trusted again. i would scrap it if the mfg won't fix it for free.

There is a reason it fogged up from the inside and it isn't a good one. Contact the mfg and ship it back. It will do it again. I had it happen years ago and when it defogged the crosshairs were bent
